Windows Messenger Service

I am running windows XP and keep getting these annoying pop ups that are under a program called windows messenger service, is there anyway I can get rid of these annoying things. I do have windows messnger installed on my PC along with the newer version MSN Messenger 6.0, the latter was not installed on my PC when I bought it. So does that mean these pop ups are coming through the old windows messenger and that to get rid of the pop ups I should uninstall this program??????

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

What is the windows messenger service actually used for then as it must be installed on my PC for a reason not just to let others send me pointless messages, in other words will it effect other programs on my PC??

Thanks for help again.
